The Skinny on Worship

Read This: “Shout out praises to the Lord, all the earth! Worship the Lord with joy! Enter his presence with joyful singing! Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us and we belong to him; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give him thanks! Praise his name!” (Psalm 100:1-4)

Think: It’s amazing to me how many of us turn into American Idol judges when it comes to worship music. Everyone has an opinion—it’s too loud or it wasn’t loud enough, there should be more back-up singers or there shouldn’t be any, the lights should be on or off, and on and on the discussion goes.

Isn’t Satan clever to turn what was meant to be an offering to God into a source of conflict? I’ve known churches that have split over traditional verses contemporary worship. And you can understand why it’s such a big deal because the music style is a deciding factor for many when they’re church shopping. After all, how can you worship God to music you don’t like, right? Others believe the style of worship reflects how hip or theologically grounded a church is and the assumption is you can’t have it both ways.
